    Fellow first-time Olympians Tabitha Peterson, Aileen Geving and Becca Hamilton are set to join her at the Winter Games in Pyeongchang.

    Roth's rink beat the one led by Jamie Sinclair 7-6 to win the best-of-three playoff in Omaha.

    Roth's team missed back-to-back takeouts in the second-to-last end, then nearly gave the match away when Roth was called for a foul for failing to release her stone before it crossed the hogline.
